Misadventures in Stock Photography (Part the Ninth: Crouching Guy, Hidden Nature)

I’d already been collecting covers of Crouching Guy when Janna sent me a few more covers and asked if I was going to do a Misadventures on him sometime. Great minds and all that. 😉

While it’s nothing new for our stock photo guys to be a bit confused and indecisive, Crouching Guy’s confusion is a bit different. Should he follow his lupine nature?

Or his less noble canine nature, embracing his role as

and do it

? *ahem*

Or should he just keep

? After all, there’s his piscine nature to consider…

…at least as long as he’s careful and doesn’t take the

. (Fortunately, there’s always that old fallback, time travel, if he messes things up.)

But personally, I think he should embrace his feline nature…

and let his inner black kitty shine through!

  1. Chris – one of your best stock photo posts yet! I mean, the title rocks and everything. Thanks for the LOLs on this otherwise barfy Monday morning (woke up to a huge pile from Miss Mary Jane…ugh!)

  2. Huh, I’m not familiar with Crouching Guy, although when I saw the title I swore it said “grouchy” guy and my first thought was “Well, he’s serious looking but he doesn’t look grouchy.” LOL

    He must stick with the ladies because I’ve never really seen him before. Although I generally don’t read those two m/m authors for a variety of reasons so that adds to his mystique for me.

  4. Hrm. While I don’t think my photoshop skills and layout skills are excellent, some of these covers definitely ping my “I can do better than that” vibe.

    And yes, embrace the inner black cat nature. You know you want to!

  5. Love the blog post title!
    My he is a busy boy! I don’t think May can realize how difficult it is to have a “black kitty nature.” As a Panther Princess, these things just come naturally.

  6. Wow, excuse my primal-ness, but wow, that is one handsome man! A man’s best friend is my favorite pic outcome, but hey, that’s pretty obvious, no? Wow.
